The astounding thing about Tesla’s car lineup is not that they’re electric vehicles with fancy innovations, for example, Auto Pilot (self-driving mode), however that they stay sporty in performance. This is particularly valid for the 2017 Tesla Model S P100D. Starting what Tesla calls Ludicrous Model, which puts additional stress on the engine, gearbox, and battery for an execution boost, the Model S P100D could hit 0-60 miles every hour in under 2.3 seconds.
The aficionado drivers at Motor Trend took the 4,891-pound vehicle to the track where it posted the quickest 0-60 mph time of any production cars on the planet. Tesla now holds the record to beat, which is exactly 2.275507139 seconds. It was likewise able to hit 30 mph, 40 mph, and 50 mph from a stop quicker than some other production auto on the planet taking after a current software upgrade by Tesla.
Outrageous mode, without a doubt. Defeating supercars intended for raw execution is no little accomplishment, let alone for a battery fueled auto. Supercars like the Ferrari LaFerrari and McLaren P1 pull ahead at higher speeds where horsepower trumps torque, yet to putter around town or falling off that red light turned green, there is not another production auto on the planet that can hang with the Tesla Model S P100D.
The nearest contender is the Porsche 918. It just slacks the Model S P100D by 0.05 seconds going from 0-30 mph. They’re about even at 0-40 mph too, after which the Tesla can put somewhat more distance amongst itself and the Porsche from 60 mph through 90 mph. They both can complete the quarter mile in only 10.5 seconds, and soon thereafter the Porsche is travelling speedier.
Existing Model S P100D proprietors who want to attempt to replicate the record run should locate a safe place to do so, for example, a closed track. They’ll likewise need to download the most recent firmware, v8.0 discharge 2.52.22. At long last, it needs Ludicrous mode, which is found in Settings > Acceleration. In the wake of pressing the Ludicrous button for five seconds, a notice message shows up inquiring as to whether you’re certain you want to push the breaking points. There are two alternatives: “No, I want my Mommy” and “Yes, bring it on!”
Selecting the previous begins a planning procedure that raises the battery temperature and cools the engine utilizing the air conditioning framework.
The majority of the fun and excitement that results comes at a big sticker price. As tried, the Model S P100D costs $148,000.
